VEGAN EDUCATION DAY COMES TO GREATER MANCHESTER
 

Star date: 16th April 2017

HARD HITTING VEGAN CAMPAIGN HITS THE STREETS

22nd April is Vegan Education Day and to promote it, Go Vegan World, the world's largest and long running vegan campaign, is hitting the area with billboard and bus adverts, digital screen messages, virtual reality exhibitions and talks... "Animal rights is also a human rights issue" says campaign director Sandra Higgins.

A hard-hitting Go Vegan World campaign will be slapping Greater Manchester streets ahead of Vegan Education Day on 22nd April, with three hundred buses carrying the messages, along with taxi and billboard advertising, 42 posters at Piccadilly Station, two hundred bathroom ads, sixty jet washed pavement impressions, and huge digital screen adverts at the Printworks and the Arndale Centre in Manchester.

On Vegan Education Day itself, there will be vegan food sampling and virtual reality exhibitions in the Go Vegan World gazebo on Market Street, while volunteers will be on hand to provide information on how veganism is a fair and ethical way of living.

Go Vegan World is the world's largest and long running vegan campaign, and its messages to Greater Manchester are to make people think, with slogans like 'Dairy Takes Babies from their Mothers', 'Humane Milk is a Myth: Don't Buy It' and 'Their Right to Life: Your Right to Health'...

Sandra Higgins, Go Vegan World campaign director and founder of the Eden Farmed Animal Sanctuary in Ireland, says: "There is substantial research that demonstrates that other animals share the human capacity to be consciously aware and to suffer. Breeding them for our use and taking their lives is unjust.

"Even when the best of welfare standards are adhered to, they face rights violations and control by humans throughout their lives and death at a slaughterhouse at a very young age" she adds "It is impossible to regulate something that is inherently unjust. Not one of us would be willing to swap places with the animals we use."

The campaign also argues that there is a growing body of research that shows how a switch to a vegan lifestyle would benefit the environment and human health, and help alleviate world hunger...
 
"Most Western world children have fatty streaks in their arteries by ten years of age" Sandra Higgins notes "This is the first sign of atherosclerosis, the leading cause of death in the Western world. A whole foods 100% plant diet prevents and reverses our No 1 killer of humans and of other animals. Animal rights is also a human rights issue...

"Most people are pleasantly surprised to find that it is easy and enjoyable to be vegan, especially when motivated by our deepest values of justice and fairness" she concludes.

The Go Vegan World Free Vegan Guide can be downloaded from the website https://goveganworld.com/download-free-vegan-guide/

On Monday 8th May 2:30pm-5:30pm there's going to be a talk about veganism titled Awakening Compassion at Manchester University Students Union, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PR.

Speakers: Professor Richard Twine on the Environment and Veganism
Laura Elizabeth Tomlinson on Health and Veganism
Sandra Higgins on Veganism and Ethics
Followed by a Q and A
The evening will also have videos, information stalls and free vegan food and drink

After Salford Council announced it was removing cladding from nine Pendleton Together tower blocks, this afternoon Salix Homes has informed residents that it is removing cladding from Canon Hussey Court on the Islington Estate.

NO TIMETABLE FOR THE REMOVAL OF CLADDING ON NINE SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

Star date: 25th June 2017

IT COULD BE MONTHS BEFORE CLADDING REMOVED IN SALFORD

"There will be no waiting around in Salford whilst there are any questions about the safety of our residents..."

On Friday, Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett announced that cladding on nine Pendleton Together tower blocks was to be removed... "We take the safety of our residents very seriously and are taking immediate steps" he declared.

Yesterday, residents were told by Pendleton Together that the cladding will not be removed until replacement material is ready to go up which could take months. And new fire safety advice has been issued, to leave not stay in the event of a fire.

SALFORD RESIDENTS BEING KEPT IN DARK OVER TOWER BLOCK DANGER

Star date: 24th June 2017

POTENTIALLY TOXIC CLADDING IN OVER A DOZEN SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

At yesterday's press conference, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, said that removing cladding on the nine Pendleton tower blocks was the "right and moral thing to do". Yet Salford City Council knows every component in all cladding in the city which planning officers have passed, and has not disclosed this information.

The Salford Star has investigated, as far as it can, the cladding and materials used in tower block refurbishment and the results are frightening...Materials used on Magnolia Court, Sycamore Court and Mulberry Court should avoid "Exposed heat, flames and/or sparks"; Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court are fitted with panels from the same manufacturer as Grenfell Tower, and there's more.
